  1. Anybody know about car A/C?

    I would think your using R134A as refrigerant. If so what type of oil did you put in the system. Most 134a uses pag oil although that is changing. Also how much oil did you add. You must add for compressor, dryer and both coils. Your kit should have advised how much to add for dry system. If not dry did you flush old oil as they do not mix. 134a pressures run about 17/25 on low side and 165/185 on high side. The fan should come on around 325, however your probably running a direct drive fan on that car. If low side is low the following should be checked evalve, hoses for frost rings and correct freon charge. Reguarding oil we always drain new compressor then add correct amount accounting for a new dryer also. Lastly make sure belt not too tight. I suppose this system is an aftermarket add on? If so I would ck the following: 1) what is the head pressure 2) belts for alinement, also that the belt is not running too deep in a pulley. The belt should not run in the bottom of any pulley. The tension can be correct but if belt is to deep it will squeal. Have run across this with aftermarket kits mixed with factory pulleys. A picture of the belt routing might be helpful.

  3. So I finally decided it was time to replace my $300.00 gun safe with a more substantial safe. After a couple visits to The Safe House i purchased the Superior Master Series SM 40 gun safe. Thanks to Nancy for her patience in answering all my questions. Although not my first choice I will be placing the safe in my attached garage which is cover by my alarm system. The garage door opens to the back yard so it will not be too visible when the door is up. I have read that placing the safe on concrete will require the use of some type of vapor barrier. My question is what would be the best barrier. I have thought about this and am thinking about sealing the floor were safe will sit with drylok and then laying a 20 mil vapor barrier down before they install the safe. I know they will drill through this when they bolt the safe down but I think it will be ok. I just wondered if anyone else had dealt with this issue and how did y'all solve it. Also do y'all think drylok and barrier would work. Thanks in advance for any help.
  4. I need an HVAC expert.

    You might included a home warranty with the sale. You can get them for around 600 hundred dollars. They can cover seller and buyer. Get one and have the warranty repair before sale
  5. Glock sight replacement

    Glock is located in Atlanta. I have found the techs that come out to get the guns are helpful and willing to answer any questions you have. Worth the trip if for no other reason than to see the mother ship.
  6. Glock sight replacement

    If night sights will work you can get the Glock steel factory night sights for $57.00 from Glock. I have switched from tru Glock to these largely due to cost. Easy to install and work great.
  7. I have an Ergo trirail on my Mossberg 590a1. The fit and finish are great. I checked their web sight and they make them for the Remington also. Ergogrips.net
  8. Tried to pm you. Not sure if I did it correctly or not. I will take this gun if still available. I'm off tomorrow so could meet then.
  9. Whacko professor calls 911 to report ROTC

    No! It would not have made the appropriate ( radical ) political statement.
  10. need a multimeter recommendation

    I have a fluke 117 at work and highly recommend it. Some of the other guys have craftsman and they seem to do a good job. With the number of computers on trucks now a days I just feel more comfortable with fluke.
  11. Retention Holsters

    You don't say what type of gun you are carrying but I have a Galco m6 x for my Glock 19. Is auto retention with a thumb release. I don't open carry very often but find this holster very good
  12. Browning High-Power

    Thanks to everyone for all the responses and information. Although it sounds as if this gun has a few quirks I think it's just what I'm looking for. The only thing that really concerns me is the magazine disconnect as I am not a fan of these. Can anybody recommend as gunsmith they trust to remove the disconnect and upgrade the trigger. As I tell my friends at work if you spend ten minutes on TGO your going to learn something new. Once again y'all haven't disappointed. Thanks for the help and Merry Christmas to all.
  13. Browning High-Power

    I plan on adding a High-Power to my gun collection after the first of the year. I feel I have a good variety of guns to meet my self defense needs so that will not be the reason for this purchase. I am buying this gun with the intention of passing it down to my sons when the time comes. This will be the reason for most of my gun purchases in the future. I would like to pass on guns that have some significance in firearms history. Having spent most of my focus on Glock pistols I am not familiar with the High-Power at all. I fact I don't recall ever having laid eyes on one. I have researched the pistol and it does seem to stand out as an interesting firearm. I would appreciate any input on this gun as far as the following is concerned: 1) is this a reliable firearm 2) are there any common issues with I should know about 3) is my research correct is this an important firearm from historical perspective I appreciate any help y'all can give and any recommendations on other firearms that would be interesting pieces to pass down would be appreciated. Thanks
  14. 1911 feeding issues with new SR1911

    I have the stainless steel comander sr1911. I have 500 rounds of Winchester white box through it without any issues. That is with chip McCormick and ruger mags. You might give a different ammo a try. I'm thinking about picking up a 5" barrel version in the near future. Hope you get things worked out
  15. Glock 43 sights fit larger models?

    The 23 sights will work on the 43 but they will hang over each side of the slide.
